Overview

To further strengthen the investment environment and assist businesses to scale, Abu Dhabi launched the Abu Dhabi IPO Fund – a catalyst for IPO success.

The Abu Dhabi Initial Public Offerings Fund (ADIPOF) accelerates the growth of private companies by facilitating and expediting their IPO processes on the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX).

The ADIPOF initiative is designed to support the entire IPO lifecycle through advisory, investment, and relationship management for private enterprises.

ADVISORY SERVICES

In collaboration with external advisors, ADIPOF also provides advisory services to its clients aiming to enlist on ADX

As a project manager for the IPO process, ADIPOF helps subsidise advisory costs related to IPO readiness assessment, governance, legal, and financial reviews.

ADIPOF further engages with shareholders, boards, and management teams to identify gaps, benchmark best practices, and drive implementation towards a successful IPO.

INSTITUTIONAL INVESTMENTS

ADIPOF serves as an institutional investor to help clients realise their IPO ambitions.

As a passive financial investor, ADIPOF allocates capital appropriate to the time and size of the IPO. It will collaborate with sponsors, strategic investors, independent financial advisors, and investment banks throughout the IPO book-building phase, as well as contributing to post-IPO market price stability by exiting after an initial holding period.

ECOSYSTEM ACCESS AND RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT

ADIPOF engages its ecosystem to support IPOs, by introducing and facilitating access to its partners:

  • The securities regulator (Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA), the listing authority (Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX), and licensing authorities (Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM).
  • Various Abu Dhabi-led developmental initiatives and programmes, including but not limited to the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO), the Abu Dhabi Residents Office (ADRO) and the Industrial Development Bureau (IDB).
  • Abu Dhabi’s public and private strategic financial investors seeking early-stage investment and joint venture opportunities.
ELIGIBILITY

The ADIPOF initiative is driven to support companies that augment economic diversification and dynamic investing opportunities in Abu Dhabi.

This is determined by:
  • A strong equity story demonstrating past successes, core competencies and a clear future strategy.
  • A sustainable financial model, even if currently in the pre-profit phase, with room for further growth
  • Experienced professional management teams with proven track-record in the sector.
  • Sector agnostic approach with an interest in the Abu Dhabi economy’s priority sectors.
